**Whitesell deadline for revisions and FND submissions March 8th***
Each spring, the Writing Center awards three Phyllis C. Whitesell Prizes to recognize excellent student writing in the General Education curriculum. For writing in a course that fulfills the First-Year Writing Requirement, two prizes are awarded: one for an essay without research, and another for a research paper. The third prize will to go an essay written in a Foundations course.
Writers who wish to enter the competition must revise their work for submission and, as part of that process, must work with a student Writing Assistant at the Writing Center on at least one occasion (which may be before or after the piece has been submitted for a grade).
First-Year Writing submissions are due by 4:00 p.m. on December 16, 2012.
In the Spring semester, the Center will notify finalists for the prize. Those writers will be given opportunity to further refine their essays. The deadline for final submissions will be March 8, 2013.
Foundations essay submissions are due by 4:00 p.m. on March 8, 2013
